Middlesbrough sack boss Strachan

Gordon Strachan has been sacked as manager of Middlesbrough. Monday's Championship round-up Strachan replaced Gareth Southgate at the Riverside Stadium after Boro failed to push for a swift promotion back to the Premier League. The former Southampton and Celtic boss was not able to get Boro climbing up the table, though, and with 11 points from as many games at the start of this season increased the pressure on him. Hull City have signed the goalkeeper Vito Mannone on loan from Arsenal until January.   "Vito is a very good young goalkeeper who has found his opportunities limited at Arsenal," said Nigel Pearson, the Tigers manager. "I like to have competition, in all positions if possible, and Vito has some Premier League and Champions League experience. "There'll be some good competition there and it's a healthy position to be in."

Derby County could welcome back midfielder Paul Green against Doncaster on Tuesday, after he missed Saturday's loss to Preston with a hamsring injury. Matt Timlin, the Portsmouth winger, has extended his loan spell at Swindon Town until November.
